Lean On Me – Bill Withers

Lean on Me

Here you will find easy sheet music for Lean on Me by Bill Withers.

Lean on Me, by Bill Withers, is one of the most popular songs that I have the opportunity to teach to my beginning students. I use this song to teach students how to play the F chord in second inversion, and how to play eighth notes with altering hand movement. I would put this at a level one, but it’s definitely a little more advanced than that because you have to move your left pinky down to low G. However, with some diligent practice, anyone can play this piece. If you need to, just play the right hand by itself. Always practice hands apart before you try to put it hands together.

Basically, you will start with your right hand in C position. Your left hand will be playing a C chord while your right hand will be playing a C with your thumb. Take notice of the vertical alignment of the chords. The left hand switches to the F chord after the right hand plays F. This gives you time to finish thinking about the right and then focus on the left.  Also be sure to practice the transition in the left hand between the C chord and the two Gs in octaves at the end of the first system. Always try practicing without looking at the keys and focusing on reading music. I hope you enjoy!
